Guests travel to our remote property in our private first-class train cars on the historic Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, which is approximately a two hour journey from downtown Durango. Guests are welcomed by our friendly Sky Rangers who help guests don their harnesses and then bring them to our learning center to learn about the course and safety. In mid-morning we come out of the trees for a mid-morning water/snack break and learn about the old growth forest ecology, and after a few more spans and a restroom stop, guests enjoy a four-course gourmet lunch served on an elevated platform overlooking the Animas River.
